On June 20th fight fans in Japan will get the next of the Dangan cards, Dangan 213. The show's main theme is a Japan Vs China card, with a number of bouts pitting the two countries against each other. Despite the general theme card is also aided by an OPBF Super Featherweight title bout, with Carlo Magali defending the title against unbeaten Japanese challenger Hironori Mishiro. The main event takes much opf the poster space, whilst the Japanese Vs China theme takes up about 40%, in what is a pretty neat poster, for what promises to be a very exciting card.
On Juen 17th fight fans in Kariya will see a Cenbtral Japanese Rookie of the Year card, with the rookie bouts making up the bulk of show. Along with the rookie bouts is a very interesting Light Flyweight bout betwene Masamichi Yabuki and recent world title challenger Gilberto Pedroza. The poster does well to explain the under-card but can clearly be seen making a big fuss out of the main event, which is given a real serious amount og space on the poster, which is no bad thing here!
On June 14th fight fans in Tokyo will get the chance to see a title triple header at the Korakuen Hall in the next Diamond Glove card. The bout features two WBO Asia Pacific title bouts, with Hiroaki Teshigawara taking on Teiru Kinoshita in a bout at Bantamweight and Warlito Parrenas facing off with Ryuichi Funai in the other, along with a Japanese Lightweight title bout between Shuichiro Yoshino and Genki Meeda. The poster for the show features the 6 men involved in the title bouts, and is a pretty simply yet eye catching design, that we quite like the look of.
On May 27th Korean fight fans get an interesting card headlined by a Korean Welterweight title fight and supported by a number of Korean Rookie of the Year bouts. The poster is really clear, really simple and works for what it's got to do. It's not flawless, but it works.
On June 9th fight fans in Hangzhou will get the chance to see Qiu Xiao Jun take on Petch Kokietgym for the OPBF Silver Super Bantamweight title. The show is set to feature not only the two main fighters, from China and Thailand respectively, but also fighters from Georgia and Indonesia in a card that is very strongly connected to the WBC. The poster, like many in China, features a lot of the fighrers and looks busy, yet makes it clear that Jun is the star of the show, and the big draw here
On June 9th fight fans in Tijuana will get the chance to see Jetro Pabustan battle against controversial Mexican fighter Luis Nery, in what will be Nery's first bout after his failure to make weight for his second bout with Shinsuke Yamanaka. As a poster the design is solid, and makes Pabustan look like a credible fighter but the reality is that the Filipino enters this bout on the back of a stoppage loss to Japan's Hiroaki Teshigawara, and the bout is more about Nery than actually being a competitive contest.
On May 26th we'll see the first All-Filipino world title fight in more than 90 years, as Jerwin Ancajas defends the IBF Super Flyweight title against Jonas Sultan. The bout is a huge one for Filipino boxing and one that seems to be the start of a new direction in Filipino boxing, where the top fighters will face each other in their primes, rather than be kept apart. The poster for the show sells the bout well, and sells the under-card too, in what is a really solid poster which we like, a lot.
On May 19th fight fans in the Philippines will get a triple title show courtest of Elorde International Productions. The show, despite being a triple-title show, isn't a huge one, but we do like the poster with the three bouts being made clear and pushed as really important. A good poster for a pretty easy to over-look card.
This coming Tuesday fight fans in China will get the chance to see a number of regional WBC title fights. The poster for the card is a pretty interesting one, but a prettu standard one for the Chinese scene, with gold and black being the key colours and the fighters in the center of the poster. It's a solid effort, bot nothing too special.
On June 7th fight fans in Japan will be able to see the start of a new B Class tournament from Dangan. The poster is a bit generic given the quality of fights the fans will be getting, and the poster really doesn't do justice to the match ups. We know this it a typical style of poster used for the B class shows, but we do see it as a pretty disappointing poster here.
Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
